Just add magic . . .

I just wanted to comment on the Ravel piano concerto. It is a shame that such a spritely and effervescent first movement of the G major concerto is followed by such a pedestrian rendition of the Adagio Assai. This extraordinary waltz is treated almost as a pedestrian chore by a pianist who in my view, is greatly talented in the technical department, but has not yet learned about the ghost he is chasing with Ravel. This slow movement should be sublime - a work that stands up pretty much in its own right - and I do urge listeners to explore elsewhere for a recording of a performance that does this magical piece justice.
